Hunt the Hog! (Photos)
Wild hog size and weight vary, and depend on genetics and local conditions. Typically, male hogs ( boars) are larger than females (sows) & average adult males may weigh 200+ pounds, stand 3 feet at the shoulder, have tails reaching 12 inches, and can be almost 5 feet from the tip of the tail to the tip of the snout. Hogs have 4 continually growing, self-sharpening tusks (2 in the upper and 2 in the lower jaw; (tusks in the upper and lower tusks rub against each other, which keeps them sharp) and can become quite pronounced with trophy value.Tusks in females are relatively small. Male hogs generally possess a thick hide on their shoulders (up to 3/4 of an inch thick) known as a hog shield that protects them during fights. All wild hogs have an excellent sense of smell & good hearing, but relatively poor vision. Wild hogs use a variety of vocalizations, including an alarm grunt given by the first hog to sense an intruder that causes a flight response by the rest of the herd. Other vocalizations are similar to those of domesticated pigs. Wild hogs also communicate through scent posts that are often also used for body scratching and rubbing. Boars also "tusk" small trees, frequently pines, scraping off the outside bark with their tusks. This behavior may play a part in some type of dominance display. Such actions can seriously damage the rubbed objects, often trees. Hog sign includes tracks, trails, wallows, rooting, rubbing, and scat. Join me on the hunt for this exciting foe.
